What the next 12 months have in store for European research policy
Much as we might want to forget 2020 due to the pain and disruption caused by the Covid-19 crisis, 2021 will inevitably be shaped by the preceding 12 months. But for research, it still promises to be a more multifaceted year than the one we’ve just left behind.
In December 2020 the EU set itself up for 2021 and the years to follow by signing off its €1 trillion 2021-27 budget framework and its €750 million Covid-19 recovery fund. This should enable it to launch its mix of new and revitalised programmes more or less on time and as planned.
